If there's one thing manufacturers love to send to female bloggers, it's skin cream.
Over the last five years, I've been sent so many moisturizers, night creams, eye lift gels, and face masques, it would make your head spin. They're nice, too, often costing far more than I'd spend if I were buying face cream for myself.
I try almost all of them, because ... free face cream! But to be honest, I rarely see any real results beyond what I get from my trusty drugstore moisturizers.
OMG, y'all, I LOVE them!
Obviously, I'm no scientific expert, but the skin around my eyes immediately felt better and firmer after I started using the Eye Contour. And I loved the texture, consistency, and scent of the Night Lift. It didn't feel the slightest bit greasy and a little bit (of both) went a long way.
Within a week or two, I began noticing that my face felt softer. I also noticed that I was happier than usual with the way my face looked after I'd applied makeup. It occurred to me that the difference had to be my new nighttime face regime, which takes less than a minute.
"Patented Maltobionic Acid/ PHA alleviates appearance of crow's feet, fortifies skin's protective barrier, and cushions skin to hide dark circles, without irritating the delicate eye area. Effective biodynamic ingredients target immediate eye area concerns. Caffeine deflates puffiness, pure botanical chamomile and ginseng refresh and soothe, while hyaluronic acid, the body's natural hydrator, acts as a moisture magnet, keeping skin soft and supple. Optical diffusers instantly illuminate and brighten the eyes."
And for the Night Lift:
"Exuviance Age Reverse Night Lift intensifies skin’s natural nighttime repair cycle with a unique multi-tasking formula of state of the art anti-aging ingredients. Help build new collagen, prevent collagen breakdown, and strengthen skin’s underlying structure overnight for skin that’s firmer, less lined, and undeniably younger looking. A triple lifting complex of Peptides and Alpha and Poly Hydroxy Acids stimulates collagen production and builds its surrounding support structure, plumping and filling the skin with natural collagen so it appears more lifted and deeper wrinkles are smoothed from the inside out."
I just find it interesting that out of all the brands I've tried (and they've run the gamut), Exuviance and Arbonne are the only two so far that really seem to have made a noticeable difference in my skin. I ruled out Arbonne because the entire routine took me way too long and the line was around $300.
So you must be wondering if there's a downside to Exuviance -- well for me, there is only one ...
It's moderately expensive. Plan to spend $68 apiece for a fairly small amount of either of these options (1.75 oz of Night Lift, .5 oz of Eye Contour). I don't know that I can swing that with all the expenses we already have in this four-kid family ...
But I sure do want to!
